San Luis Obispo is one of my favorite places to visit! There are so many outdoorsy activities to do, such as hiking, biking, wine tasting, or a day at the beach. One of my favorite things to do is wander down the main street on a Thursday night during the Farmer's Market. My husband and I both went to Cal Poly, and since we love the area so much, we decided to get married down there! I would highly recommend a visit to SLO for anyone who wants to relax and have fun at the same time.

This is such a fun place to visit! Very close to ATVing at Pismo Beach. There's a gum wall for istagram lovers. There's an above the cloud hike called Bishop Peak. Lastly, if you message me, I will tell you where to stay that offers free skeet shooting with housing. My secret to reveal. :) PS. Must eat at Splash Cafe if you ATV at Pismo!
